Rain Policy
If severe inclement weather is threatening the safety of the game, the game will be suspended or canceled by a designated member of the board. In the event this occurs, the following will happen:

  • Coaches will be informed of the cancellation by a member of the Board of Directors.
  • A Rain Delay / Cancellation notice will be posted on the League’s website (amesburylittleleague.org), our Facebook page, and a league-wide email will be sent.
  • Coaches should ensure that their players/parents are aware of the postponement.
If in the process of playing a game inclement weather is threatening, it is at the discretion of the coaches in a T-ball, A or AA game, the umpire and the coaches in an AAA game, and the MVUA umpire in a majors game to decide whether to continue, suspend or conclude the game.

For T-ball through AAA, if a board member is present and not a manager or coach of one of the two teams, that board member should take responsibility for the decision as whether to continue or stop play. Play must be stopped and may not resume until 20 minutes following the last lightning strike or rumble of thunder.
